Further Probing of the Early Solar System through AMS measurement of 36Cl

36Cl production method is via local particle irradiation by the proto-Sun, where H and He are accelerated onto dust and gas. We have assessed the viability of this production mechanism through cross-section measurements of these reactions at several relevant energies. This work required two parts, production of 36Cl and subsequent measurement with Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS). Learn more
